The band was formed as a result of a mutual appreciation of blues which was fairly taboo in those days – particularly for a band that did Bar Mitvahs and birthdays for teenagers!  The band performed at various socials organised by the Betar Youth Movement (Harry Margolis Hall, Youth Hall in the same complex).  They also did a few sessions at the Avondale Scout Hall and Alex Park sports club.  The band found that it was tough competing against the more established bands due to lack of funding and promotion/marketing resources.  Their material was heavily influenced by groups like Canned Heat, Chicken Shack, Blues Breakers and Muddy Waters.  They also experimented with some jazz/rock material with influences from artists such as Herbie Mann.
